Hi! My name is Nelson

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from Granite City, IL.


23 years old   M

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

grapes, sweet potato, yogurt covered anything, crackers, pasta

on top of his cage and on the couch with his mom

I hate the puppy running around my cage.

She tells me how handsome I am and that I'm her favorite boy!

Nelson will hang by his beak with his feet up by his eyes and "scream" like he is in trouble so his mom will come pick him up..

If mom's eating it, I must have some!.

  Hi Nelson
You're one heck of a handsome birdie, Nelson. I like to hang by my feet and act goofy too. I love to make my mom laugh when I do that. Sometimes I just hang by one toenail. I like the same foods you do too. Wanna be my friend? Well, Nelson, have a good day and try to stay out of trouble :) Oh, I left you a vote!

Come visit me, Nate.

  Hey big guy, nice to meet you!!
You sound like our Gracie!!! Her previous owner had to part with her and she does the hanging upside down and screaming thing, like you to get mom to pick her up. She also will hang on with her beak to her door and slide both feet up and down the bars when she wants the door opened. It does not take long to train our humans does it??
Hope you will stop by our way, leaving you a vote!!

Come visit me, Princess Gracie Thankyou for making me BOTD, Martha Speaks, Peaches & Dazz.
